Sean Strickland silenced the doubters with a one-side decision win over Israel Adesanya in the main event of UFC 293 to become the UFC middleweight champion of the world. After a stunning upset victory, who will Strickland face in his first title defense, and will it be in a rematch against the two-time champion?

On an all-new live edition of On To the Next One, MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck and Alexander K. Lee attempt to answer that question following Saturday’s pay-per-view event and make an educated guess on where Strickland and Adesanya go from here. Additionally, future matchups are discussed for Alexander Volkov after he submitted Tai Tuivasa in the co-main event, Manel Kape after his victory in the Fight of the Night against Felipe dos Santos, along with fellow main card winners Justin Tafa, Tyson Pedro, and more.
